Toronto instrumental four-piece Fresh Snow is set to release their latest musical offering ‘Won’ on September 11. The album will be made available on vinyl/digital (Pre-order) via Hand Drawn Dracula and on limited cassette edition via Reel Cod Records. The album’s first single Proper Burial features vocals from DIANA’s Carmen Elle. They have shared the cinematic video for the track via YouTube below.
With the group appearing on the cover of NOW Magazine’s Christmas issue, and their POLARIS Long-Listed debut LP ‘I’ making it onto 2013 best-of lists from NOW, The GRID, BlogTO, Torontoist, and the Toronto Star, Fresh Snow’s new directions in instrumental music are clearly something that the critics agree on. “They can shift from Godspeed to Kraftwerk to Mogwai within the same song, and then segue to eminently danceable synth-led disco a few minutes later with some pleasantly woozy violin lines offering a decidedly human counterpoint to the mechanical rhythms driving things” wrote Chromewaves blogger Frank Yang.
They have been invited to perform at NXNE, Wavelength, Long Winter, Electric Eclectics, and Arboretum Festival, along with venues throughout Ontario and in Montreal putting on their live show that’s featured them in red hoods, wooden masks, and playing inside a pod full of projectors.
